work table before & after
Last weekend at the Arboretum Antiques Market, I found this honeyofa work table.
It was love at first sight and I knew it would be perfect in my studio. But the top needed some help. I LOVED the holes, and dents and bumps and bruises. It is a work table after all. It was the finish that I didn’t like.
So I hand sanded it because it took an army of elephants to get the table into the room…there was no way we were taking it back out to sand it.
I rubbed Tung Oil all over it and it did nothing. Zilch. Zip. Nada.
So I stained it with Minwax Dark Walnut. I know they make like a million other colors but I just love it.
Oooooooo, baby. Just look at that rich, delectable finish. That’s what I’m talkin bout.
Happy Monday, peeps!
